This publication is divided into the following sections : Introduction to Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems, Implementing Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems, Advanced Traffic Management Systems, Example IVHS Projects (United States and International) and Additional Articles on Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems.
Intelligent Vehicle-Highway Systems are providing a welcome stimulus to research on dynamic urban transportation network models. This book presents a new generation of models for solving dynamic travel choice problems including traveler's destination choice, mode choice, departure/arrival time choice and route choice. These models are expected to function as off-line travel forecasting and evaluation tools, and eventually as on-line prediction and control models in advanced traveler information and traffic management systems. In addition to a rich set of new formulations and solution algorithms, the book provides a summary of the necessary mathematical background and concludes with a discussion of the requirements for model implementation.
This document contains project updates for the Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS) Institutional and Legal Issues Program. Through focused research, the department hopes to find solutions to specific problems facing IVHS participants and policy makers. The department is taking a careful look at lessons learned in IVHS operational tests and models for IVHS deployment. Analysis is underway to understand the impact and bvenefits IVHS deployment could have on air quality, privacy, user acceptance, and other areas of concern to society at large.
With the advent of intelligent vehicle (IV) systems, the age of the electronic co-pilot in road vehicles is upon us. These cutting-edge systems can monitor nearby traffic, sense a vehicle's movement, and even alert the driver to hit the brakes to avoid a collision. This groundbreaking resource offers professionals a comprehensive overview of IV systems aimed at providing enhanced safety, greater productivity, and less stress for drivers. Rather than bogging down readers with difficult technical discourse, this easy-to-understand book presents a conceptual and realistic view of how IV systems work and the issues involved with their introduction into road vehicles. Helping engineers apply their skills to this emerging field, this practical reference offers a thorough understanding of how electronics and electronic systems must work within automobiles, heavy trucks, and buses. The book examines real-world products, along with practical issues, including cost, market aspects, driver interface, and user acceptance.
'Intelligent Vehicle Technologies' covers the growing field of intelligent technologies, from intelligent control systems to intelligent sensors. Systems such as in-car navigation devices and cruise control are already being introduced into modern vehicles, but manufacturers are now racing to develop systems such as 'smart' cruise control, on-vehicle driver information systems, collision avoidance systems, vision enhancement and roadworthiness diagnostics systems. aimed specifically at the automotive industry packed with practical examples and applications in-depth treatment written in a text book style (rather than a theoretical specialist text style)
